Flowers, Personified


Have you ever wondered what flowers would look like if they were human?  J.J Grandville, a French cartoonist, did! He used his creativity and imagination to create a series of floral illustrations in his “Les Fleurs Animeés” giving flowers some personality and character. These were first published in 1847.

About Lesley Lowry

I love flowers! I enjoy growing them, learning about them and I love creating bouquets of freshly cut flowers. In our climate where it's winter most of the time, the growing season is way too short, so I have started this blog to get my fix all winter! I encourage you to post regularly on this blog, especially if you're lucky enough to live in a warm climate and can grow flowers all year long. I intend to post a lot of interesting facts and fun stuff about flowers, as well as info on many varieties of flowers.
